Lille Prediction – Can Lille overcome Ajax defeat?

Lille return to their Stade Pierre-Mauroy for this Matchday 2 clash with Premier League side, Chelsea, as the hosts look to continue their recovery since being handed a heavy 3-0 loss away at Ajax on Matchday 1.

Since that opening group match defeat in the Netherlands, Lille have steadied the ship with 1-1 draws against Rennes and Nice respectively along with a solid 2-0 home win against Strasbourg with all 3 results being achieved in the French top flight.

Switch to overall results in the Champions League though and Lille’s problems have continued as the French hosts have lost their last 3 Champions League ties on the trot having suffered defeats to Porto (home and away back in 2014) along with the aforementioned loss to Ajax.

History appears to be against them at home as well as Lille have lost 4 of their last 5 matches at home in this competition, but the hosts may well fancy their chances of ending this poor sequence against a fragile Chelsea outfit on Wednesday night.

Chelsea Prediction – Can Chelsea continue revival?

After being handed back-to-back defeats to Valencia 1-0 in their opening match in Group H of this Champions League as well as a 2-1 loss at home to Liverpool in the Premier League, Chelsea have responded in positive fashion in recent matches.

A 7-1 thrashing of League Two side, Grimsby Town, in the League Cup followed by a 2-0 home win over Brighton in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on the weekend should give Chelsea plenty of reason to be confident of getting something against this uncertain looking Lille outfit, even if The Blues are away from home.

The visitors are without a win from their last 4 matches overall in the Champions League though, having drawn 1-1 with both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona as well as a 3-0 loss to Barcelona and the recent 1-0 defeat to Valencia.

Results away from home have also been patchy as Chelsea have managed to record just 3 away wins out of their last 9 ties in this competition, but 4 of these 9 have seen both teams score.


Key-Facts – Lille v Chelsea

  • Lille have lost 4 of their last 5 matches at home in the Champions League
  • Chelsea have managed to record just 3 away wins out of their last 9 in the CL
  • 4 of these 9 away matches have seen both teams score in the CL


Betting Tips Verdict

This fixture involves two ordinary looking teams that will both fancy their chances of beating the other – both could score as a result.
